Fascinating book. If nothing else, it's interesting for its beautiful anatomical artwork. It also contains some good common sense health advice, but I wouldn't rely on it for medical information. One of the remedies for kidney stone is to drink a mixture of parsley and gin every morning "until relief is obtained." I wonder what people will think a hundred years from now of our current medical knowledge?
